Tom Kha Gai, my favorite Thai indulgence!

6.A big whiff of fresh laundry smell... Except, we use free & clear because we have sensitive skin. But, YUM! I loooove bounty!

7. The weather in my great state. I love the freshness in a fall day and the glory of the mountains on a clear summer afternoon. Most people gripe about the weather, no matter the season. It's too hot. It's too wet. It's too grey. It's too cold. It's too muggy. I will take this opportunity to ask all people who hate the PNW to leave. There will be more room for me this way!!

My favorite mountains, The Olympics

8. A good laugh. The gut wrenching kind... who doesn't love that?
Stephanie just made me crack up... see what you think about her "Blondie's Year in Review!"

9. A clean house. This rarely happens in this place! In fact, that's what I'm supposed to being at this very second...

10. Last, but not least... MUSIC! I am a music fanatic. I am not a music SNOB, however. I love all types (well, except artists like Slipknot... *ahem*)

If you can't tell... That lovely lady is my favorite (of all time,) Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland! Oh, OH! *goosebumps* The concert I saw them in this summer was amazing... I can't wait to see them again!

Now its time to tag the top ten blogs that make me smile...
  1. A Daily Dose of Davis -- Jen is a great blogger and a good friend. I hope to meet her IRL some day.
  2. The Pioneer Woman -- I love her dang recipes! She's a hoot!
  3. Live.Love.Laugh. -- Heather is a great blogger about every day life. She brought us along her journey to marriage and now she's a new Auntie!
  4. House of Rose -- Mandy makes some really cute baby shoes and her little P Man is adorable! She's currently in labor with Bentley so I doubt she'll be blogging a whole lot in the next few days...
  5. Life According to Candice -- I don't even remember how I found her, but Candice is hilarious. Definitely NOT PG -- consider yourself warned! :)
  6. The Branches -- Becky is about ready to have her son Connor!
  7. The Browns -- Becky's twin sister, Bonnie's blog about her life with her brand new baby Jarrett!
  8. Another Day In Paradise -- DAR is quite the lady... She's a runner, new attorney and I love reading her posts.
  9. Live.Laugh.Love. -- I'm a new follower of Stephanie's but I'll be returning to her blog a lot, I can tell already!
  10. Seattle Smiths -- A fellow PNW blogger and the host of Wishful Wednesdays!
  11. Experiments in a Galley Kitchen -- Mrs. Potts' blog is another new one. I've tried to catch up and love it already!
